    What the heck, man? Can you please title your post "jazztele should not click on this" next time?:D


    Seriously though, 300 bucks? Almost falls into the "why the hell not?" category...

    I can not buy anything for awhile. I will not look at anything closely relating to pics of guitars that you can pick up for a pitance so to speak. Just put a new furnace in and that about tapped us out. Oh yea that and my daughter's transmission repair we paid for. Oh yea and the alternator that I put in the college car. Oh yea the snow tires we had to put on the back of my wifes' hyundai. There is something else I am forgetting, oh that's it my youngest son's college tuition in Jan. The only saving grace here is that by hook or crook I'll find a way to scarf one of these fine looking beasties. I mean I do have an inheritance coming and I don't need another shovelhead or do I? thanks

    As a Jazzer, I am already in love with the natural model. Durn! I wish I hadn't seen these.

    WOW! That natural finish is amazing! I dont really care for the Liverpools, I would probably put some HBs in there. Nonetheless BREATHTAKING!

    Gotta agree with Penny Century, they all look nice, but the Surf Green says something special.

    I really like the natural one. The knobs are interesting, reminds me of older style Vox amp knobs, like from a Super Beatle or something.

    Those are nice. Real nice.

    I haven't bought a guitar since last May. It might be time...

    They look cool, I've been waiting for Xaviere to offer something like this. The bodies are a little squat though, sort of like Jay Turser or Arbor archtops.

    I believe the pickups are Nashville retrotrons.

    They certainly are beautiful. I have not seen this company before. Can someone give a quick synopsis please?

    Where are they on the quality scale? How so cheap? (China??, elves??)
